I have been reading this book for three days now, and so far I love it! At first, I did not expect that I would like it. However, in the end, I learned to like it. I really liked how the author adds a sort of backround to events in Star Wars films, and TV shows. I also liked how he twisted the future a bit, with Imperials taking over, just not as Sith. As in page 243-284, you don't always expect turns in people's attitudes. In the book, the new government is depicted as fiendish, with a seemingly superfluous hatred for the Jedi Order. Slowly ruining the Jedi Order and always showing hatred towards them, in a casual way.
Star Wars; Fate of the Jedi: Outcast.
Great loss can be overcome. Throughout the book, the Jedi as a whole, and individuals within it lose much. However, in order to face the coming troubles, they must move on. First, Grand Master Luke Skywalker is exiled. His brother goes with him. Second, a new outbreak of the same thing which affected Jedi Jacen Solo, and led him to murder Mara Jade and become powerful in the Yuzong Vong war. With the Order in chaos, and a corrupt government, the Jedi live on.
The Galactic Empire, currently referred to as the “Imperial Remnant” has taken control of the republic once again. However, there have been changes. The Sith Order has been thrown out of the nation, and no one within favors the Sith. Instead, many support the Jedi, but want more power over them. Luke Skywalker, Grand Master of the Jedi Order, founder of the reconstruction, is arrested. Luke Skywalker had been a leading rebel against the Imperial Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil war. He had killed plenty of Imperial troops, officers, and Sith. Old Republic ideas of government took control once more. One of them was the idea of the Imperials being the leaders of the government and military. Now in power, they arrested him for “Treason”. He was blamed with the entire civil war. His lawyer was quite smart, and managed to practically clear him. Alas, it was not to be. The new government also blamed him for the Jacen Solo crisis and could have blamed him with other issues from the Yuuzong Vong crisis, but a deal was struck between the corrupt Chief of State Daala and Luke. Instead of something worse, he was exiled from Coruscant for 10 years. Unless he can provide good, convincing evidence to support his reason as to why Jacen went “Mad”. His son, a capable Jedi, named ben, came with him. When both of them left, it served as a major blow to the Jedi Order. As if to make things worse, a Jedi Master, Hamner was made Grand Master by Daala, even though it should have been more of a Jedi Council order. Hamner, though loyal and knowledgeable, was not the best choice for Grand Master. Even he knew this. Despite this loss, the Jedi Order sustains itself.
The whole Jacen Solo crisis was another loss for the Order. With the collapse of the Old Republic, which had sustained order since the Jedi and Sith first emerged, the Jedi were nearly exterminated. At least officially, there was no one who knew the ancient skills and practices. Still, in the end even this was overcome. A powerful Jedi, Jacen Solo, son of Han and Organa Solo, was a new crisis. Ambitious, he went on a quest to understand the force and help the order. He was overcome by a strange force-illness. He attempted to put in motion some of his own ideas, but turned evil in the process. A long-dead Sith Lord, from the time of the Old Republic, Darth Cadeus, took control of his mind with or without Jacen’s support. Jacen then was involved in the whole Yuzong Vong conflict. During the conflict, he killed Luke Skywalker’s wife, Mara Jade. He also attempted to brainwash Luke’s son, Ben.
